CHILD SEXUAL MOLESTATION

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF A CHILD IS BEING SEXUALLY MOLESTED?

Would you recognize the signs of child sexual molestation? Being primarily a polygamy site child sexual molestation and abuse is more common among them, because of the quest for child brides. But it also goes on outside of polygamy and this article applies to both groups, children in polygamy and children not born in polygamy. In polygamous colonies there is a lack of marriageable women because men have more than one wife. Therefore to have any additional wives men look to young girls, some as young as 12 years. They also expel older boys from their communities to reduce the competition for the young girls. I consider sexual relations between young girls and men as sexual abuse as it robs girls of their formative years and their agency of choice. The signs of child sexual molestation may be more obvious in a polygamous group because it is open season for pursuing young girls for marriage. 

What are the signs that children are being sexually abused and molested sexually? I wrote an earlier blog on grooming children for sexual molestation which can be viewed in addition to this article. Click here.  

Reviewing the internet I noted the following signs that might indicate that a child is being sexually molested.

  • Acting out in an inappropriate sexual way with toys or objects
  • Nightmares, sleeping problems
  • Becoming withdrawn or very clingy
  • Becoming unusually secretive
  • Sudden unexplained personality changes, mood swings and seeming insecure
  • Regressing to younger behaviours, e.g. bedwetting
  • Unaccountable fear of particular places or people
  • Outburst of anger
  • Changes in eating habits
  • New adult words for body parts and no obvious source
  • Talk of a new, older friend and unexplained money or gifts
  • Self-harm (cutting, burning or other harmful activities)
  • Physical signs, such as, unexplained soreness or bruises around genitals or mouth, sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy
  • Running away
  • Not wanting to be alone with a particular child or young person    

Child abuse or neglect are never a child’s fault. When it comes to the perpetrator, it could be a close relative such as step father, uncle or even a grandfather. It could be a neighbor or an older friend of the child or even a best friend of the parent. Someone that is over affectionate with the child, maybe a school teacher or even a scoutmaster. One must be observant of those who associate with your child. Get to know those who do spend time with your child, and question anything that might seem unusual or abnormal. In my article on grooming, one of the best friends of the father abducted the 12 year old daughter and hid out in Mexico for three months before being found. This friend was even a leader in his church. Be suspicious of any adult that spends abnormal time with your child and is abnormally affectionate or interested in your child.
